Hayden Panettiere: ‘I Want Four Kids’

Monday, March 30, 2009

Hayden Panettiere wants “four kids” – but insists she won’t want her children to follow her into showbiz.

Speaking to In Style magazine, the 19-year-old Heroes star – who recently split from boyfriend Milo Ventimiglia – says she’d love love to settle down and have a large family.

She reveals, “I always said I want four kids – I love kids.

“I would love to be a mum and to have a family – for Italians, it’s the most important thing you can have.”

“I think you have to be a pretty strong person to enter the industry that young and not be affected by it,” she added.

“I was lucky, but I’d never want my kids to be subject to that much criticism at such a young age.”
